“Pleasant property on the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

In a "late season" visit to the Cape - we got to stay here in the last week before they closed for the season. Very few people were staying here, so it was very quiet. Lovely grounds which were still being cared for while we were there. Had an ocean facing room on the 2nd floor with a nice sized balcony. Room was comfortable, as were the beds. Office staff were extremely accomodating. Would certainly stay here again.

Although we had cool and rainy weather, we enjoyed walking the beach, sitting out on the lawnchairs, playing shuffleboard, and driving to see the sand sculptures and eat breakfast nearby at a wonderful bakery serving the biggest donuts, croissants and muffins I've seen. Great room and so handy to have a fridge and toaster and small table and chairs in the room.

We spent the long weekend at the Surfcomber and had an amazing time. The property in general and our room in particular were immaculate. Beautifully kept flowers were a lovely splash of color around the grounds and it was great to be right on the beach. The staff were very friendly and helpful in providing us tips on sights to see in Cape Cod. I also really appreciated the fresh hot coffee in the office every morning - a nice touch. We'd definitely return!

I've lost track of how many times I've stayed at Surfcomber now. I love it here. The staff is always helpful, friendly. The rooms are always kept nice and clean. it was awesome to enjoy some summer like weather in the fall. I can't wait for my next trip in the spring. Thanks SC for another great visit to CC.

We booked this motel for a girls weekend online after seeing the pictures on Trip Advisor and reading some of the reviews. All of the reviews seemed to have the same theme, it was a great place. When we drove up we noticed that the hotel grounds were immaculate. Upon inspection of our room #17, we could not believe the view of the beach and ocean (all the ocean front rooms were taken). The room was sunny, clean and even had a Keourig coffee maker, small frig and microwave. We loved the location so much we spent most of the time sitting outside on the chairs provided and just looking at the beach. On the Friday night, we were treated to a spectacular show by the Harvest Moon. It rose big and orange and beautiful. Everyone was taking pics of it. Everyone we met had been staying here for years and had nothing but good things to say. We will be coming back also! The office staff was very helpful even printing out some menu's of places to eat for us. We witnessed the chamber maids even cleaning up above the outside doors with brooms.....wow! All in all a wonderful relaxing time smack dab on the ocean, what more could you want?

Room Tip: Room #17 had one of the best views there. Not oceanfront but side view all the way down to Harwich...

This motel has it ALL! This was my 2nd visit in 6 years...the second time was just as wonderful as the first time. I look forward to my 3rd, 4th and subsequent stays here. I cannot find one thing to complain about...location, cleanliness, staff, amenities...they are all top shelf! If you are visiting Cape Cod book your room here!!!

Room Tip: If you have an issue with stairs...be sure to book a room on the first floor.

Stayed at the Surfcomber for two nights with two other family groups. Living close by to the Cape and having, in the past, owned a house at the Cape for years, I was never in the need for a hotel. And asking locals is worthless since they also have never stayed in hotels. So started researching, and Tripadvisor and all the travelers who take the time to write reviews steered me right! Checked in on Friday before the rest of the group arrived and was greeted warmly by Matt, who was working the desk that weekend. He couldn't have been more helpful with restaurant suggestions as plans kept changing to fit the group's needs. Found the room to be clean, large and just what everyone said it was going to be. Beautifully maintained property, right on the beach. It is not a large property, and that was even better for us. When our three days ended, none of us were ready to leave and all agreed that it was just perfect. We will definitely be back!
